Setting up the Sweet Paprika studio
As some of you know, Debbie and I had to move studios rather unexpectedly last August. Although it was very stressful at the time, Debbie managed to find us another studio within a week, and the new space is wonderful! But because we moved in in such a rush, we didn't have a lot of time to set everything up the way we wanted last fall. In an effort to start out the new year with a more organized and efficient work space, part of January was spent shopping for new shelving and storage bins. There are still a few things to be done, but it's really coming together. Here's a little photographic tour for you:
This is what the studio looked like when we moved all our stuff in
We still need a few more storage bins here, but it's getting there!

Hand-dyed yarn, waiting to be skeined and labeled
If you're in Montreal and want to come say hello and see the studio in person, please contact us! We're happy to have visitors, but we're not there every day so do make sure to make an appointment before dropping by.

It's that time of year again! Our 2020 batch of Norbouillet fleece is already at the mill, ready to be custom-spun into this year's batch of our locally-sourced, 100% Canadian yarns.
This year as we were setting up pre-orders we took some time to look through all the beautiful projects that our customers have made with these yarns over the past few years, and we were inspired to share a few of our favourites here. Thank you so much to everyone who gave us permission to share your photos!
